August produces

Recommended Posts

managed to get in  a few sessions over the last couple of weeks,

After the QLD tri working so hard for fish I wanted to turn a few numbers and no better place than the oyster racks, conditions looked good with not to much breeze or current, and literally first cast without even turning the handle, a hit

that set the mojo every rack produced either a fish or a strike

and hardbodies

working along spotted some smaller fish feeding at the surface on the racks cast a cranka crab at them as sson as it hit the water a pack of solid brutes appeared grabbed the crab and casually swam with it when the line tightened things got a bit ugly, bream really go hard on a locked drag after avery scary tussle a better quality fish was in the net

a beautiful thick 35cm, biggest one I've landed this year and in solid condition  

, ended up with a good little session of 14 bream landed even sight casted quite a few working the edge of the racks, most of the fish were better than average size in the high 20's to low 30's with the one btter quality fish

not to end the day had a few casts landbased on the way home for some GT's

not much size but lenty of numbers 

cpule of days later hit the Hastings with Amy on the kayaks searching for flathead 

we saw loads of fish but the bite was a bit tough did end u with a few fish each the biggest 55cm

a couple made their way to the dinner plate

  To finish off headed for a pre work session at Nambucca near the breakwall, the water was beyond clear and the fish very spooky, but with some persistence managed to fire up a couple of bream

watched this guy get competitive and engulf the lure the crystal clear water makes it exciting

working along the breakwall amongst a school of blackfish and other stuff there were bluefin trevally working along started casting at them, and casting and casting some more doesn't take much to get them to chase but takeas a lot to get them to bite. They are a very frustrating species the trik is to get their attention by twitching the lure and really increasing the speed when they get close and after a LOT of casts

this guy nails it at my feet, took some good runs before coming ashore he measured 36cm a new pb a good sized bluefin this far south

continued casting and after another eternity

a smaller specimen but really well coloured we only see bluefins every few years so I'm always really pumped to catch them

had a couple more hits and misses but that was it for the bluefin effort 

hopefully the end of winter and spring will keep producing 

cheers for reading

That's some solid bream, would have been fun. Good on you for figuring out a bit more on how to get those bluefin trevs to bite.
